Guess what guys? They found a gene for itchiness, and it is related to glutamate and GABA. The news stories today are filled with how gastrin releasing peptide receptor genes cause more itchiness in people. Well, it is our job to point out where these new discoveries show that MSG will make some people even more itchy than usual or more asthmatic, or more allergic, or more epileptic or more autistic. For any new gene discovery - do a google search of that genes name and glutamate and let us know what you find. They are discovering new genetic links to illness all the times. These are opportunities to find out how the body works and why some people react more to MSG than others.

Amen to ithiness being caused by MSG. My dad would itch so bad after eating out, that he would have my mother scratch so hard sometimes, it would bleed. I had the same reaction for years. Poor Mike's hands would get tired!
